clients who are already using OpenOffice, so I was really
interested to see the level of capability that Calc had in its
"So with that background, I found the book to be very
informative to someone like me. It almost felt as if it were
written for me. But I tried to step back from that, because of the
experience of a lot of my clients who are not programmers -- who
don't have a lot of technical background and who use spreadsheets
in the way a lot of people do, as databases and things like that.

"Would this book help me out if I were in that situation?" And for
some people it would and it would at least give them an idea of the
capabilities that are there. However, there are several times in
the book where the author says, "Okay, here is how we do this and
now we are going to move onto something else, so if you're
interested in exploring this in more detail, go to this Website. Go
to the OpenOffice.org Website, where they have detailed user guides
and that type of thing."
